Color: amber to reddish orange, translucent (filtered) Nose: piney and fruity Taste: hoppy, piney, grapefruit, slightly acidic bite on the back of the pallet. Slight lingering hoppyness of the back of the tongue very manageable hoppy after taste. Over all extremely hoppy and Not for the faint of heart Mouth: dry and sweet, hoppy yet balanced

First sip was surprisingly good. Then came the dirty, mucky, scraped from a moss-covered barrel that sat at the bottom of the ocean for 40 years taste. And after that, scum was the dominant note. I have liked every single New Belgium beer I've had, less the IPAs. This one is not as bad as Ranger, but just not for me.

Imperial IPA. (IIPA) bitter but hoppy

Holy crap, one of the hoppiest I have had and I am in love with it.

Was not expecting the quality of this beer. Great taste. Good hoppy flavor but enough malts to smooth it out and finishes sweet. Great beer!

Thin and a little sour. Not as hoppy as I expected.

This is good stuff. Hoppy but not floral. Something may be caramel or malt at the end. Could very well be a new favorite

Good amount of hop, but a little on the bitter side

A little thin. Not enough hop up front or in the back.
